Music of January 🎶🌺🌸

Hey lovelies 💕,

I listened to some amazing music in January. I will share all the new music which has been released that month in this post. I hope you will like it. I love the new album of Selena Gomez 😍. There are so many amazing songs in it. Also some other Spanish songs has been released such as from Rosalía and Shakira.

Lizzo – Good as hell

I just listened to this song because in the Spanish talent show Operación Triunfo some participants were singing it. I’m always late too listening to some songs haha. I really love this song so much! So much girl power! 💪💜 More songs of this style please.

Jonas Brothers – What a man gotta do

The Jonas Brothers are on fire lately! 😍🔥 They are releasing so many good songs. I love this song and the video is so catchy too. I also really LOVE that their wives are in so many videoclips. It’s so cute. I wish to go to one of their concerts and sing and dance along every song of them.

John Legend – Conversations in the dark

”I won’t ever try to change you, change you
I will always want the same you, same you
Swear on everything I pray to
That I won’t break your heart
I’ll be there when you get lonely, lonely
Keep the secrets that you told me, told me
And your love is all you owe me
And I won’t break your heart

I don’t listen to John Legend that much but sometimes I hear a song I really love like this one. He is such a great artist. This song is so beautiful and touching. I love how he writes about love and how this music just make you feel that love. I feel a bit alone too while listening to this song because of being single. Deep down I crave for that one true love.

India Menzel ft. Evan Rachel Wood – Show yourself (Frozen 2)

”Show yourself
Step into your power
Throw yourself
Into something new
You are the one you’ve been waiting for
All of my life
All of your life
Oh, show yourself”

When I watched Frozen 2 I felt completely in love with this song and everything in this scene 😍✨. I relate to this song so much. I have to show myself more instead of hiding in this world. I hide myself because of being bullied in my teens. I am worth it and have the right to love and show myself. We all have our answers in ourselves. We just have to look into our hearts and find it. This song is just so wonderful. Frozen is amazing.

Kacey Musgraves – All is found (Frozen 2)

I find this song so relaxing and so beautiful too. I love Disney for their beautiful movies such as Frozen and for the beautiful music such as this song. It’s so touching and cute.

Taylor Swift – Only the young

While I was watching the amazing documentary of Taylor Swift called Miss Americana I heard this new song for the first time 💖. I wrote about her documentary in this post. This song is SO GOOD!!! It’s a song with a message. We are the genereation who can save and change this world 🌍💪. We may be young but we can do it! We have the right to speak up about anything we believe in.

Eva – Let’s twist again (Operación Triunfo 2020)

I love this Spanish talent show so I will share some nice covers which they sing in the liveshows. I love how Eva sang Let’s twist again by Chubby Checker. She did it so well and so good. She was wearing clothes from her grandfather haha so awesome! I love her expression and everything. Such a good performance. I wish I would feel so comfortable singing on that stage.

Rosalía – Juro que

AAAHHH Rosalía is back with some beautiful flamenco music! 💃 It’s about a flamenco girl who was physically and verbally abused. She is back to her roots and I love it. I also love when she make songs in the genre of reggeaton but I love these kinds of songs more in her style.

Shakira ft. Anuel AA – Me gusta

I can’t wait for more new music of Shakira. I love her old songs so much such as Waka Waka and La Bicicleta. I also like this song. It’s catchy.

Selena Gomez – Rare

Finally Selena is back with a new album! 💕 I have missed her. She is such a good and genuine artist. She already released the amazing songs Loose you to love me and Look at her now. I love her new music. I will share my top three favourite songs of her new album with you.

Selena Gomez – Rare

I know that I’m special”

Beautiful song! This videoclip is also so beautiful. I love the colours, her being in nature and her dress. She is so special and so beautiful 🌸. We are all special in our own way. I love the message of this song so much. It also sounds so good. It’s really her style.

Selena Gomez – People you know

We used to be close, but people can go
From people you know to people you don’t
And what hurts the most is people can go

Another amazing song of Selena. I really feel this way too. We all loose people in our lives whether that is due to falling apart, grief or anything else 💔. I find it hard sometimes to let people go but sometimes it’s for the best. Her voice is so beautiful. I love the beat in this song too.

Selena Gomez ft. 6LACK – Crowded room

This is such a relaxing song. I can feel those vibes. I love it when she sings those high notes. It all sounds so good.

BTS – Black Swan (Performed by MN Dance Company)

I cried while watching this beautiful, amazing and inspiring music video of the new song Black Swan by BTS 🦢. This is real music. It feels like the guy dancing feels like not fitting in with the others and is doing his own dance. That’s what I feel while watching it. I love the instruments and just everything. The dancers are amazing. So incredible beautiful! This is real art.

G. Soul – Bad habit

While I was listening to Black Swan I saw this song from G.Soul. Nice song. I don’t listen that much to K-pop but I really like this song and the beats of it.

The Original Rudeboys – Hypocrete

byI’M SO HAPPY THEY ARE BACK! ☺️👏 I missed them so much. I loved listening to their music. The Original Rudeboys was the support act of The Script some years ago when I went to see them. I love the songs Stars in my eyes, Travelling man and Blue eyes. I love this new song of them. They make such great music together and sing very well. I can’t wait for more music of them this year.

Racoon – Het is al laat toch

Racoon is one of my fav bands of The Netherlands. They are so talented. I loved when I saw them live in Haarlem once. I’m happy they are making music again. I really like this new song. I normally don’t like that much when Dutch artists sing in Dutch but sometimes it’s really good like this time haha. I just am more used to listening songs in English or in Spanish.

Thank you so much for reading this blog post and listening to these amazing songs. Which song is your favourite? What kind of music do you listen to? What was your favourite song from January? Let me know lovelies. I will speak to you all in my next blog post.

Much love 💕,

xoxo Christina

Spotify Wrapped 2019 🎶

Hey lovelies 💕,

I love to read other music reviews of 2019 and I also loved to see mine. I’m excited to share it with you all. Music is life. We can know a person’s personality through their music style. I love Taylor Swift, she’s my favourite artist of this decade and forever. I love romantic music and music which touch my soul 🎶. It has to make me feel something. Music is always there for us, in good and bad times. I can definitely see within the years I have Spotify how my music taste has changed depending on what I was going through in my life.

How my music changed within the seasons

Winter ❄️☃️🌬️

In the Winter I listened to Ariana Grande, Alfred García and the podcast of Yoga Girl. The new album Thank u, next of Ariana just came out and I had it on repeat. Same goes for the album of Alfred which came out in December. I also listened a lot to the podcast of Yoga Girl – conversations from the heart. I listen to her podcast every week so that doesn’t change at all.

Spring 🌼🌷🌻

During the Spring time I listened again a lot to Ariana Grande, Alfred García and to the podcast of Yoga Girl – conversations from the heart. What changed was that I also listened a lot to the song Arcade of the Dutch Duncan Laurence which was the winner of Eurovision. Best song ever. Goosebumps all the time.

Summer 🌞🌊

In the Summer I only listened to Taylor Swift’s new album Lover. Best album ever 😍💖. I still listen to it. I also listened to the podcast of Yoga Girl of course. That never changes haha.

Autumn 🍁🍃

During Autum my music didn’t change that much. I still listened to Taylor Swift, and also to a new podcast of Yoga Girl which is Yoga Girl daily. The daily version are just 5 minutes each day which could be a meditation or an insight or thankful Thursday. I also listened to Miki Núñez who represented Eurovision for Spain last year 🎉🇪🇸.

Top artist of 2019

My top artist was Ariana Grande which was surprising to me because deep down in my heart my top artist is Taylor Swift haha sorry, no not sorry 😂💖. I also love Ariana so much and because her album came earlier I listened more to her album in the beginning of 2019. Maybe, next year this changed. I listened more than 10 hours to her music. My favourite song was bloodline. I love this song.

Top artists of 2019

I’m not surprised that these are my top artists as they are my favs but I also thought Amaia and Sofia Ellar would make the list. I also listened so much to them. Maybe, next year. I love Ariana, Taylor, Alfred, Julia and Aitana. I love to listen to American artists and Spanish ones.

World citizen

I listened to a lot of music from different countries of the world 🌍. I listened to music from 24 different countries. I listened to music from USA (Ariana Grande), of course Spain a lot (Aitana), United Kingdom (Ed Sheeran), Avicii (Sweden, his posthumous album was beautiful… I still miss him so much) and also BTS (South Korea).

My top genres

I listened mostly to pop music, Spanish pop, Dutch pop, Colombian pop and R&B in Spanish. It’s just all pop except of the R&B.

My top 10 songs

1. Arcade – Duncan Laurence
2. Lover – Taylor Swift
3. The Archer – Taylor Swift
4. Bloodline – Ariana Grande
5. La Venda – Miki Núñez
6. Fake Smile – Ariana Grande
7. Anxiety – Julia Michaels ft. Selena Gomez
8. Imagine – Ariana Grande
9. Bad Idea – Ariana Grande
10. You Need To Calm Down – Taylor Swift

I love all of these songs and artists. They all have a special place in my heart 💞.

My top podcast

The only podcast I listen to is the one of Yoga Girl – conversations from the heart. I listened 3007 minutes to her podcasts which is more than 50 hours. Her podcasts are the best. She’s the biggest inspiration in my life. Her podcast are so inspiring and full of beautiful lessons. They are about self love, mental health, trauma, healing, yoga, motherhood, relationships, life, death and everything in between. I wish to meet her one day and go to a yoga retreat in Aruba 🇦🇼 because it’s my biggest dream evah 😍💖🙏✨.

Time spent on Spotify from the last decade

Last year I listened to more music on Spotify than this year. If you see the minutes I listened to music on Spotify in 2015 until now it definitely decreased. I think in 2015 I still listened to break up music so had to use Spotify for that.

The best music of the decade

My music taste changed a lot during this decade because at the end of 2012 I experienced my first and only heartbreak 💔😢. I listened a lot to the song A drop of the ocean and other songs of Ron Pope. I also listened a lot to all the break up songs of The Script. I don’t like The Script so much anymore because they changed way too much. After those years I listened a lot to Passenger. Let her go is my favourite song of him. I loved his concert where I went to a few years ago. In 2017 the song Despacito was such a hit through the whole world. Last year I listened a lot to Sofia Ellar and I still do. I love her so much. This year was the year of Taylor Swift and Ariana Grande. My favourite song of the year is Arcade because that’s the winning Eurovision song and made so much impact on me 😍😭. I needed this song to heal my broken heart at the end of this decade. It touched my heart in so many ways.

Duncan Laurence – Arcade

My top artist of the decade

The artist of the decade for me is Passenger which is normal when you saw above that I listened to his songs a lot during this decade. Now, I listen more to up beat and happy songs but also more slower ones. It’s nice to listen to all different kinds of music styles.

Stats of 2019

Ariana, Taylor, Alfred, Julia and Aitana are my top artists of 2019 of course. I listened 7233 minutes to Spotify which is a lot. My top genre is of course pop 💃.

My decade wrapped

My top artists of this decade are Passenger, The Script, Ron Pope, Frank Hamilton and Joshua Radin. These are all artists I listened to after the break up of my first love. The next decade this will definitely change because I almost don’t listen to these artists anymore. My favourite number was definitely Let her go from Passenger. I also loved Rojitas las orejas from Fito y Fitopaldis. This is one song I listened to a lot when I liked a Mexican 🇲🇽 guy haha it was our song. I also loved the song Coastal Love from Honne. My top genre was of course Pop.

My top songs of 2019 – Playlist

You can listen to my songs of 2019 on this playlist which Spotify made for me. There are Spanish songs in them but also English songs.

Thank you all for reading this blog post. I hope you found it interesting to hear about what kind of music I listened to this year and decade 🎶. What are your favourite artists of 2019? What were your favourite songs this year? Which music genre do you listen to? Let me know lovelies. I will speak to you all in my next blog post.

Much love 💕,

xoxo Christina

Music of October 🎶💞

Hey lovelies 💕,

I know I’m a bit late with this post but doesn’t matter, right?! I’m always late for everything so yeah that’s me 😂. It’s never too late to share some good music of the month October. Last month some good Spanish music and other pop music have been released 🎶.

Camila Cabello – Cry for me

Camila Cabello is only releasing so many good songs 😍. I can’t wait for her new album “Romance”. I can’t wait for this beautiful album of songs related to love. I know I will like it as I have been loving all her new songs so much. I think this song is amazing and has such a nice beat.

Camila Cabello – Easy

Always thought I was hard to love till you made it seem so easy, seem so easy

What a beautiful song! 💖👌 This is definitely one of my favs of Camila. I love her sweet voice and the lyrics is so relatable. I also find myself being needy and always overthinking. I think that I’m hard to love as well but it’s just that the right person will love you for who you are. Love has to be tender, easy and not complicated.

Harry Styles – Lights up

Harry Styles is back and I can’t also wait for his album too! This song is wonderful and he is so cute too. His voice is just amazing and only gets better and better. Also off topic, I really miss One Direction. I wish they will come back together one day.

Ed Sheeran ft. Camila Cabello & Cardi B – South of the border

This song was released already in Summer but the video not. I really like it. I also find Camila always so sweet and beautiful in the video. I love to hear her singing in Spanish too. This song has such a good vibe and makes me feel like dancing. It’s just very chill and relaxing.

Duncan Laurence – Love don’t hate it

“There are no boundaries, no limits when it comes to love. It’s the purest thing we have in this world and yet so many people, including myself, have to fight for it every single day”

BEAUTIFUL SONG FROM ONE OF MY FAV ARTISTS YASSSS!!! 😍 If you don’t know who Duncan is you have been living under a cave haha because I wrote so much about him. You can read all about him HERE. Long story short, he represented The Netherlands in Eurovision Song Contest this year and won. I’m still so happy that happened and would love to see it live next year. I also have concert tickets to see Duncan alive in Ziggo Dome Amsterdam in March 2020. He is such a cutie and so handsome. He is touring now through Europe. After Arcade this is his new single. I love it so much. It’s so good. It makes me dance the night away and makes me so happy. His voice is perfect. The quote you can read above is from his Instagram. He is bisexual and sexuality is still a somehow taboo in this society. This is a song about accepting yourself and who you choose to love. I love him so much.

Alfred García – Londres

Alfred García already released this song before but finally the video clip came out of this song. Londres is a beautiful song about London and it’s one my favs from Alfred. It’s amazing. I love the vintage vibes ✨. It also make me kinda nostalgic to when I saw the Spanish talent show because he wrote most of his songs of his album in the Academy. I would love to find someone to love like Alfred. I love his creativity, his passion for music and his sensibility. He has struggled with anxiety and depression and I love how open he always is about these topics because it’s so important to share. It can help yourself but also others too.

Melani – Marte (Representing Spain in Eurovision Junior Song Contest)

Melani is 12 years old and represented Spain in The Eurovision Junior Song Contest this year. She sings opera and also pop. It’s such a beautiful song with an important message. It’s about not throwing plastic in the ocean. It’s about climate change and to take care of our planet as we only have one 🌍🌊. Her voice is beautiful. Those high notes are incredible difficult to sing. She sings the song being the ocean itself.

In this video above you can watch Melani singing the song live at Junior Eurovision Song Contest in Poland last Sunday. She did so well and finally after 13 years Spain was back. I’m proud of her third place but I wished she won. I hope Spain will do well next year in the adult Eurovision too.

Melendi – Por encima de la bruma

Melendi is a well known Spanish artist and his songs always have such a beautiful message. I love this song as it’s also very emotional. It’s about women suffering from breath cancer. I wish everyone will get better as it’s a horrible sickness. Right now, I know a little child from 6 years old who is suffering from leucemia. I hope she will get better soon 🙏. This song is about being brave and transforming fear into love. The money from this song are all donations for the Spanish association for cancer.

Selena Gomez – Lose you to love myself

“We’d always go into it blindly
I needed to lose you to find me
This dance, it was killing me softly
I needed to hate you to love me, yeah

I’m so happy Selena is back! 💞 I have always loved her songs so much. This song is so beautiful and really made me tear up. It reminds me of my first love and how much that heartbreak hurt me. I needed to loose him to find myself again. Even though I’m still struggling from time to time with loving myself, low self esteem and also anxiety I love myself more than years ago. That’s already something to be proud of. Sometimes we have to lose someone we love so much to appreciate the love for ourselves more. At the end, our relationship with ourselves is the most important one we can have. This song is just perfect. She sings so beautifully. I love it. The black and white video fits perfect by this song.

Selena Gomez – Look at her now

“She knows she’ll find love (She knows)
Only if she wants it”

Selena is also releasing her new album in January. Everyone is releasing new albums and I’m not ready for it haha because that means YEAHHH buying concert tickets! I don’t have enough money for all of them. This is the other song she released and I love it. This song makes me feel proud to be a woman who is strong and fierce. All women are beautiful. Girl power!

JP Saxe ft. Julia Michaels – If the world was ending

This song is so beautiful. Anything with Julia Michaels is just perfect. Their voices together fit so perfectly. You can feel the emotion through their singing.

OG3NE – Straight to you

The sisters from the girl group OG3NE just released their new album. They represented The Netherlands a few years ago in Eurovision. They also have won The voice of Holland and Dance, Dance, Dance. I love their voices so much. The harmonies are beautiful. They lost their mother a few years ago because of cancer and I admire their strength to carry on and sing. They are such sweethearts and deserve the best. I wish to go to a concert once. I have already shared some songs of the album which were released before which were “First clash lovers” and “Starve”. Below I will share my three favourites of the whole album.

Og3ne – One world away

“We are stronger when we stand together
We are one world away from love
We gotta chance to make a difference
We got a chance to make it right

In this video they performed this song live. I love this song so much. I also love the lyrics so much. It’s definitely one of my favs. They sound so good together. This song makes me feel powerful and it’s just a feel good song.

Og3ne – You

Wow so beautiful. Their voices together are so magical. This song is wonderful. I could listen to it so many times and not get tired of it. I love this sound as it’s calming to listen to.

Og3ne – The end

Dear friend can you help me
Cause I got so much shit I can’t comprehend
I’m on a cliff so high, staring at the depths so low
And I got no where else to go

I’m looking for a shelter
A place I can run to
So don’t you leave me alone
It’s been a thousand times

That’s I’ve been there too, for you
You never had to ask me though
So this is your turn now
To give whatever I need
It’s not the time to shut the door
I’m so afraid of what could be

They sang this song live during the Summer. I think this song is beautiful and I just had to share the lyrics. It’s so relatable, honest and so pure. It’s important that friends are there for each other when we need it the most. Sometimes I find myself that I care way too much about other people than they care about me so then it was time to ask myself if that was a real friendship. I’m happy I only have authentic and people who care about me in my life right now. I don’t need fake friends. They sang so beautifully. I love their individual voices but when they sing together it’s so amazing 👌👏.

Thank you all for reading this post full of amazing music 🎵. What was your favourite song from my list? To which song or artist did you listen to in October? To which new album are you most looking forward to? Let me know lovelies. I will speak to you all in my next blog post.

Much love 💕,



xoxo Christina

Music of September 🎶💗

Hey lovelies 💕,

Again another month full of beautiful music. A lot of Spanish music was released and also other amazing songs such as from Camila Cabello and OG3NE. I hope you all will like it a lot 💗.

Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus & Lana del Rey – Don’t call me angel

I really like this song!! I wished Lana del Rey would have song more in this song though but it’s a good song. The three queens singing together 👸😍. We can’t ask for more, right?!

Camila Cabello – Shameless

Camila is on fire with releasing good music! 🔥 Shameless is such a good song. Also this sentence in her lyrics “I’m tired of loving somebody that’s not mine” really can be so relatable.

Camila Cabello – Liar

Camila is not only a good singer but also a great actress. LOVE THIS SONG. I love the beat, the sound and also the videoclip is very fun to watch. It’s a very catchy song which can get into your head very easily.

Zahara – Con las ganas (Versión 2019)

This is one of my favourite Spanish songs ever. It’s so beautiful and so emotional 😭. Zahara is such a good artist. This song was already released a few years ago but she made another version this year. You can also hear it in the Spanish serie Élite which I didn’t watch yet and also in the Spanish talent show. The song is about a loved one who betrayed her. She composed this song while crying and singing in a grey room.

Sofia Ellar – Media Tinta

Wow such a beautiful and emotional song from one of my fav Spanish artists! 💗 Sofia Ellar is amazing. This song is so beautiful. I also love how she is covered with inkt as tinta in the title means inkt in Spanish. It feels so raw and vulnerable. This song is about the two Sofia’s, one is the artist and the other one is just being herself where she also show her sensitivity and sensibility.

Sofia Ellar ft. Dani Fernández – Rock’n’rolles de chiquillos

This is a beautiful version with Dani of this song from Sofia. This song is about a loved one who went away and then suddenly one day that loved one rings again at your door while you are heartbroken. Such a powerful balad. The voices are so well connected to each other and seeing Sofia sing always makes me so happy as she is just so real and honest. LOVE HER SO MUCH 💞💯.

OG3NE – First clash lovers

This three sisters from OG3NE are amazing. I always love their songs as well as this new song of the new album which comes out next month. I can’t wait. I love the harmony of their beautiful voices. I really hope I can see them live in The Netherlands soon.

Julia Michaels – If you need me

“I wish I could fix it, I wish I knew what to say
But everything feels like a lie these days
Don’t know how not to feel that way, oh
They’re reaching for reasons, it’s all gonna be okay
But everyone feels like a liar these days
Don’t know how not to feel that way

But if you need me, I’ll be right there
When you’re dreaming all your nightmares
I’ll come tackle the monsters
I’ll find where they hide in the nighttime
If you need me, I’ll be right there
When you’re happy and when you’re scared
I can still be your shoulder
I’ll be by your side even if I’m not next to you”

Such a beautiful song! Julia wrote this song inspired by the “Sorry For Your Loss” community on Facebook. We all will have to live with loosing people in our life which will break our heart 💔😢. It’s in those times that we need such a song and remind us of the people who are right there for us to overcome the bad times in life. It broke my heart when one woman said: “It’s been so difficult not to have him. Not to have him as my person anymore.”

Julia Michaels – Priest

“Sometimes, I miss you and then I remember
That I deserve much better
Cover my tattoo about you with another
And now I’m feeling much better

Oh, you broke my heart and now you want some redemption
Oh, it’s obvious that you ain’t learned your lesson
Oh, you’re owning up so you can get to heaven
Oh, but I’m not a priest, so fuck your confession”

Finally she released the music video of this catchy song. I really like it so much. Hell yeah, we deserve much better always. We have to let our exes in the past because they are there for a reason.

Amaia – Pero no pasa nada

Amaia, the winner of the Spanish talent show Operación Triunfo finally released her first album. She is such a lovely and amazing singer. I always feel nostalgic when I listen to her songs. Before the release she already shared some amazing songs such as Quedará en nuestra mente, El Relámpago, y Nadie podría hacerlo. I shared these songs in this and this post. You can see my other three favourites songs from her album below.

Amaia – Quiero que vengas

AMAZING SONG! 😍👌 Amaia also created literally art in this videoclip as she recreated famous paintings in this clip. I think she has such a beautiful style of music. It isn’t mainstream. I love that she makes music which relate to being her authentically self. I wish there would be more artists like her.

Amaia – Nuevo verano

This is such a lovely song. She sings about how she loves this world but she loves him more. She loves to talk to him. She also sings about how Summer ends and that it will not come back. I feel very happy, inspired and also nostalgic when I listen to this song.

Amaia – Porque apareciste

Her voice sounds like an angel and is so beautiful 🧚‍♀️. What I love the most of this song is her voice and hearing the guitar as background. It’s just so perfect together. She sings about that she loves someone because he appeared in her life. She loves him with all his lies.

The light the heat – Your love is my home

“You are the sunrise waking my day
You are the moonlight shining my way
This is where I call home

You are the fire warming my night
With you I’ll stay till the morning light
This is where I call home
This is where I call home

Your love is like no other
Your love is where I feel alive
My safety and my shelter
Your love is my home

I love this song so much 💕. It’s so beautiful, magical and makes me feel calm ✨. I heard this song in a video of Yoga Girl on her Instagram to announce her book tour “To love and let go”. I always love to discover new amazing music. There’s so much beautiful music to be discovered.

Agoney – Black

I also know Agoney from the Spanish talent show Operación Triunfo. His voice is beautiful and this song shows it. He sings about how this society we live in is sick and only thinks of likes. It’s just so true that we live in a fake world where it’s hard to be ourselves and be different. It feels like we have to be like everyone else is. I also really love the black atmosphere in this clip as it maches so well with this song.

Luca Hänni – Bella Bella

Luca is so cute, sings well and also dances well 💃. Luca represented Switzerland this year in Eurovision Song Contest with the song “She got me.” This is his new single and I really like it. The beat is also very nice.

Miki Núñez – Amuza

Miki from the Spanish talent show released his first album. I find his album very positive which makes me happy to dance and sing to every song of him. It’s a celebration of life 🎉. I already shared how much I loved his single “Celebrate” in this post and of course his song for Eurovision “La venda”. I will maybe go to his concert next month in Spain. I will share my other favourites songs of his album below.

Miki Núñez ft. Adrià Salas, Arnau Griso & Nil Moliner – Eterno verano

This song is only good vibes 💗✌️. I love Miki singing with these artists all together so much. It’s a song about living an endless Summer 🌞. Oh how I wish that could be possible. BRING SUMMER BACK PLEASE OKAY. At least we have this song which reminds us of the sunshine. I also can relate to the sentence he sings about how waking up early is dying. I’m so a night owl haha 🦉😴.

Miki Núñez ft. Sofia Ellar – Coral del Arrecife

My favourites Miki and Sofia sang together this amazing song. It’s a song about the coral reef. I really like the two voices combined.

Miki Núñez – Escriurem

Aaaah so beautiful!!! 😍 I love this song so much. I especially love this song because he doesn’t sing in Spanish but in Catalan. There are a lot of problems right now in this region because they want to seperate from Spain. I really hope it will be solved soon 🙏. The Spaniards and Catalans really love each other. I just think they have to dialogue and come to a peaceful solution. I don’t want to say more about this political issue as it’s hard to talk about it in Spain. I really love that Miki sings in his mother language. I really like this language and it sounds so good in this song.

Thank you all for reading this blog post and listening to some new music 🎵. Which song did you like most? What was your favourite song in September? To which artist do yo listen to? Let me know lovelies. I will speak to you all in my next blog post.

Much love 💕,

Music of August 💗🎶 & 400 followers 🎉💞

Hey lovelies 💕,

Here is another beautiful month full of amazing music! The music I loved the most in August was of course the beautiful new album Lover of my queen Tay Tay aka Taylor Swift yeahhh 😍👸. Let’s do this.

I also happy that I reached 400 followers which I’m so proud of. Thank you for always being there for me. Thank you for being there for me in the good and bad times. I will stay with you all forever. Love you so much 💞

Taylor Swift – Lover

Finally Taylor Swift released her seventh album! 😍🎉 I was waiting so long for this to happen. I loved the album Reputation but I wanted again some country and other pop songs like her older albums. I think this album really comes back to her old roots again and it is just so amazing. I loved all the songs so much. This album is about all the forms of love such as family, friends, relationships and life in general. I’m also so proud that this album is her own. Maybe, I will do a review of all the songs next month. For now I just want to share some of my favourites songs of this album. I already told you guys that I loved the song Me, YNTCM and The Archer.

It’s definitely one of my fav albums ever 💞✨. That’s why I also bought it which you can read in this blog post. Thank you Tay Tay for being so real, honest and always so lovely. I can’t wait to meet you one day and see you live. That would be a dream coming true. I’ve been a fan since I was 16 years old so yeah already 10 years and I will keep counting more years. I wish you so much love, happiness and luck in your personal life and in your career. I love you so much, to infinity and beyond, to the moon and back 🌜🌛.

Taylor Swift – Paper Rings

“I like shiny things, but I’d marry you with paper rings
Uh huh, that’s right
Darling, you’re the one I want, and
I hate accidents except when we went from friends to this
Uh huh, that’s right
Darling, you’re the one I want, and
Paper rings and picture frames and dirty dreams
Oh, you’re the one I want”

THIS SONG IS SUCH A BOP. MY FAVOURITE. I always start to dance around my home like crazyyyy 💃. I love the sound, the beat and asdfghjkl it makes me so happy 😍😄.

Taylor Swift – Lover

This is just such a beautiful and romantic song 💘. I love the video too as it describes her life. You can see the house with all the different rooms with represents her albums, her different eras. This song would be perfect for a dance on a wedding 💒 🤵👰. It sound so sweet and it’s just such a good love song. Also her whole album makes me feel in love even though I have no lover lol. I’m so alone 😔😂.

Taylor Swift ft. Dixie Chicks – Soon you’ll get better

Ooh-ah, soon you’ll get better
Ooh-ah, soon you’ll get better
Ooh-ah, you’ll get better soon
‘Cause you have to


And I hate to make this all about me
But who am I supposed to talk to?
What am I supposed to do
If there’s no you?

This song makes me so emotional and I cried when I first heard it. It’s a beautiful country song. It’s about Taylor’s mom who has cancer. She got again cancer this year. I really hope she will get better. It reminds me of all the people suffering from cancer, mental illness or any other illness. I hope they all will get better soon 🙏.

Taylor Swift – London Boy

Such a lovely and happy song! We all know that she wrote this song about her lover Joe Alwyn. I wish her so much happiness and love. She definitely deserves it all ❤️.

Ariana Grande ft. Social House – Boyfriend

From one queen to another queen 👑. Ari released another amazing song! I love the beat and just all of it. I guess we all have one person in our life which we like but are not together with them. However, we also don’t want to see them with anyone else. It’s definitely a complicated mess.

Miley Cyrus – Slide away

“Move on, we’re not 17
I’m not who I used to be
You say that everything changed
You’re right, we’re grown now”

AMAZING SONG. Miley is back and I’m so happy! This is one of my fav songs right now. The video was released in September but the song was released in August so I will already share the official video. She’s beautiful and her voice is so goooood. I know she will keep on releasing good music. She’s on fire!🔥

Amaia – Quedará en nuestra mente

Amaia who is the winner from the Spanish talentshow Operación Triunfo 2017 will release her new album next Friday which also included this beautiful song. I love that she only release music which are her style. This may not sound like the typical pop songs but I really love it so much. It makes me feel nostalgic and she also has such a lovely and dreamy voice. I can listen to her for hours and never get tired of her voice. She’s just amazing.

Rosalía ft. Ozuna – Yo x ti, Tu x por mi

Rosalía is the one of the most famous Spanish artist right now and I’m just so proud of her. Her music is amazing 👏. This song has so much flow and sounds so good! Ozuna is a singer who sings reggeaton music. My fav part is always LA ROSALÍAAAA.

Lola Indigo ft. Don Patricio – Lola bunny

The chorus just sticks in my head. I really like this catchy song. Lola Indigo was the first one who had to leave during the Spanish talentshow two years ago and now she is becoming one of the biggest artists in Spain and also in Latin America. She also dances so well.

Julia Michaels – Body

I just wanna love my body like you love my body
I wanna look in the mirror and tell it that it’s beautiful like you do
I wanna love my body like you love my body
Wanna make it feel like it’s incredible like you do
And I don’t see what you see
But I want to, I want to, oh
Love my body like I love your body

Her album Inner Monologue Part 2 was released in June but she just released this beautiful video of the song Body. It’s definitely one of my fav songs of her new album. We all may feel insecure about our body but we have to learn to love our bodies. We are all enough. We may not always believe that we are enough but really we are.

Julia Michaels – 17

This is also one of my favourite songs of Julia. It makes me so happy and I love the video she just released. She is so cute and I could listen to her voice for like forevah because it’s so different and raw than other artists I listen to. She’s is an amazing singer-songwriter 💞👌.

Cupido ft. Lola Indigo & Alizzz – Autoestima

I love this collaboration with Lola Indigo. It’s a nice song. They sing about how their parents made them a beautiful face and that beautiful people are not getting liked that much. In the video you also see that there are surrounded with trash. It’s funny hahah 😂.

Marilia Monzón – Algarabía

It’s sad that this don’t get that much views and interaction like other songs from other concursants of the Spanish talentshow. Marilia just released this happy song which I really like. Algarabía means a noice produced by happy and festive voices which is a good description of her song.

Davina Michelle – Better now

“I think it’s better now, better now, let go
I’m better off, I’m better off alone
It’s time to grab my shit and leave
You clean this mess up after me
It’s better now, better now, I go”

There are not that much artists I love in The Netherlands but Davina is one of them. This song is awesome! I also love how there are two girls kissing in the video as LGBT+ representation is so important in the music industry and just always in this world we live in 🌍🏳️‍🌈. Love is love.

Ava Max – Torn

I love her other songs such as Sweet but psycho and So am I more but this song is also great. I can’t wait for more new music of her to release.

Thank you all for reading this blog post. What was your favourite song of August? Have you listened to any of these songs? Which song did you like from my post? Let me know lovelies. I will speak to you all in my next blog post.

Much love 💕,

xoxo Christina

Grieving about a celebrity is not crazy 

CgGxJDqW8AIL8nt

Hola lovelies 💕,

Last Friday one of the most famous DJ’s named Avicii died. This Swedish DJ was just a legend, a genius, a beautiful human being. I spoke about his death in this blog post: R.I.P. Legend DJ Avicii 💔🎶😢 I never knew this news would hit me so hard. I don’t want to repeat myself but today I’m going to write about Avicii again and that’s not crazy to grief about someone you have never met such as a celebrity. I gues I’m not the only one who have experienced this. Does anyone of you have experienced this one day?  I would love to know your story in the comments.

So many legends die so young such as musicians, writers, actors, singers, models….. I can name a few important names who have left us so early which are Michael Jackson – 50 years old, Whitney Houston – 48 years old, Amy Winehouse – 27 years old, Marilyn Monroe which is one of my favourite actresses died when she was only 37 years old and many more. Marilyn Monroe was born the first of June just like me. I could add many more to this list which is really sad. Most of the famous people die because of suicide, being alcoholic and taking too much drugs. They all face a lot of stress and anxiety in their lives and in order to cope with it they use those methods which makes their health worse. The death of Avicii came to a shock to me. I guess to all of us. The whole world couldn’t believe it. I really like house music mostly because of him. His style of Electronic Dance Music was just so amazing. His songs were so inspiring and happy. It always made me have a smile on my face. He was loved by the whole world. This weekend there was a tribute in Stockholm, the place he came from. Some of his music was played and all his fans were crying. They were remembering him. Also in The Netherlands, the Dom Tower in Utrecht played some of his songs and in Spain during the Pre Party of Eurovision Alfred and Laura played Wake me up in Sala Riviera in Madrid. I saw it on the internet and it was so beautiful to see how we all know the lyrics and sing it out loud.

He was loved by the whole world. I never knew I was going to be so sad for so many days and grief about someone who I’ve never met. Of course, I also have gone through some grief when my Spanish grandmother died but I was too young to understand death. I will write a blog post soon about why I’m so afraid of death. It’s a phobia in my life. I’ve never went to a funeral in my life. My parents said that I was too young to go. It’s not crazy to grief about a celebrity even though you have never met them. I guess many of us feel connected to some celebrities. I feel connected to Avicii because of his songs and lyrics. I played the songs all the time. My first love, ex boyfriend was a huge fan of Avicii and his favourite song was Seek Bromance with the edit of Avicii. I don’t know if he’s still a fan because I don’t talk to him anymore. I always listened to this song with him and it became a part of my life.

The fact that Avicii died at such a young age, only 28 years old hits me really hard because sometimes it feels like we are just surviving through life but not really living. I feel that way sometimes. I can relate to his lyrics from The Nights so much like: “One day you”ll leave this world behind so live a life you will remember”. I really want to live this way but yet my anxiety don’t always let me. I’m feeling happier than a few years ago but I still need to find myself. I need to get my life together but I’m scared. His lyrics helps me to go on and to remind myself to live a life I’m happy about. Also the lyrics about the song Wake me up relate to me. “Feeling my way through the darkness guided by a beating heart”. I’ve experienced a lot of anxiety in my life which made me difficult to see the light but at the end there is a light and your life has a purpose even though sometimes you may not see it. I also love the sentence: “Hope I get the chance to travel the world and wish that I could stay forever this young”. I do hope to travel around the world as much as I can, as far as I can and as long as I can. I love this sentence too: “Life’s a game made for everyone and love is a prize” I trully believe we are alive to love each other and that life is worth it 💕

This weekend I watched the documentary on Netflix of Avicii which is called True Stories. I made me think about my life because he was also going through a lot of stress and anxiety in life. The reason why he died is still not released. I just really hope it isn’t suicide. I wish people would care more about each other and ask more often how are you doing. I wish people would ask that in the way to help someone and not because they are interested and just wanna judge you. In this documentary you see that Avicii was really vulnerable, sensitive and also an introvert. His manager Ash pushed him sometimes to keep touring but he couldn’t do it because he felt ill. He was afraid to dissapoint his manager, agencies and fans. Sometimes I feel that way too in my life. I’m always afraid to dissapoint people. Besides, Avicii had pancreatis just like my father had. That’s also a point why this death hits me hard. My father almost died when I was 11 years old. I will also make an apart blog post about this. Long story but I will tell it short. He had to go through 7 surgeries in 5 years time with many complications. Now, he has diabetis but he’s alive and that’s the most important thing which counts for me. Avicii also had to go through surgery and they took his appendix and gal bladder out. My father also don’t have the gal bladder anymore.

In the documentary True Stories, I also saw how he suffered from anxiety and stress just like I do in my life. It’s really sad that not much people understand this. It’s still a stigma and needs to end. I feel like suicide, depression, anxiety, eating disorders etc is even a bigger stigma in the famous world then in the non-famous world. People just assume that famous people have their lives together and that everything’s perfect when it isn’t at all. I guess they have so much more stress to go than a normal person. When you are famous, you don’t have any privacy. Avicii started to drink alcohol because he felt anxious when he had to go on stage. A few drinks of alcohol made him feel a bit happier and less anxious to do his concerts. I really can understand him but it wasn’t good for his health. He came in a negative cycle which contribute to pancreatitis. I liked the documentary because it showed the real life of Avicii, his ups and downs. It showed that he had his own struggles just like we all have. We assume that famous people are some kind of gods with perfect lives but it isn’t true a all.

I didn’t know I could go through grief so hard when I don’t know Avicii. I’ve never met him. I’m a fan but I’m not his family or friends. Now,  I know that it isn’t crazy to grief about a celebrity. Your grief count. Your feelings are valid. I went to his concert in Amsterdam on the 22 of February of 2014. It was just so amazing. I could feel all the energy and good vibes. I’m sure I can find the videos and pictures on my computer but they are in The Netherlands. I will forever cherish this beautiful moment. I’m so glad I went to this concert. It was €70 I think but it was definitely so worth it. Now, we can’t go to his concert anymore. It’s really sad. I read some news that he had almost finished a new album. I hope somebody will release this album to enjoy the new music of Avicii.

It’s sad that we can’t enjoy any concerts of him anymore. He stopped touring in 2016 because of his health problems. Now, he died…. At least, we have the legacy of all his music and we can always play it. I hope he’s in paradise now. We will never ever forget him. His music will make our tears dry and make us happy. Good vibes only! 🎶💕 Music is life! 🎤❤🙏

Thank you all for reading this blog post. I’ll speak to you all soon!

Much love 💕,

xoxo Christina

R.I.P. Legend DJ Avicii 💔🎶😢

Hey lovely bloggers 💕,

I wanted to write about why I love Spring so much and show some beautiful pictures from Spring time here in Spain. I heard some shocking news so I decided to write this blog post first. On Friday the world famous Avicii died. I made this collage for him. I had to write this for Avicii. I was just checking my phone after drinking a delicious milkshake with my friends in the afternoon. I left my friends and I already felt a bit anxious and emotional these days. I always feel that way before my period. I checked Instagram and saw a post of Wiwibloggs which is the word’s most read independent Eurovision site. There I read the bad news about the death of Avicii. I just couldn’t believe it. I spend the 10 minutes walking to home crying.

31117403_10209341840142740_3354495137509015552_n.jpg

I read the news at home on a Dutch new website and on Spanish television. I’m still in shock. Avicii also known as Tim Bergling died today with only 28 years old. Avicii is a famous Swedish DJ. I still can’t believe it or is it because I just don’t want to accept this hard truth… 😢💔 I’m a huge  fan of him. They still don’t know why he died. He took a break from being a DJ since 2016 and had pancreatitis from drinking too much alcohol and had a lot of stress and other problems. He also suffered from mental and physical problems and had a lot of anxiety in his life. Most people think that famous people live a perfect life but they also suffer from these problems. Life is never perfect and it doesn’t matter if we are famous or not. We are all going through own battles. Even if you don’t see someone else’s their struggles doesn’t mean they aren’t true.

I just really don’t like that always these kind of stories happen in the music and famous world. It’s really sad. I wish people would care more about each other and help each other more. Maybe, that would save a life…. 💔 You never know. I always wanted to be a singer and be famous but now I know that that world isn’t made for me. I love singing but I love to do it for fun and as a passion and hobby. Being famous is really hard and people only just see the good things such as travelling the world, earning much money, etc. I’m just really heartbroken that legends like Avicii, David Bowie, Michael Jackson, Amy Winehouse and so many more die because of drugs, alcochol, suicide…. Why does these legends have to die so young? I wish they could help this people more. Everyone needs love and support.

Avicii is one of my favourite DJ’s ever 😍 He will always be that for me 💕 I grew up with all his beautiful songs. I love house music so much. I went to the concert of Avicii in Amsterdam Ziggo Dome on the 22 of February in 2014. It was one of the best concerts I ever went to and which I will never ever forget. I love all his music so much. I’m going to watch the documentary True Stories too. It describes the ups and downs of Avicii and tells his problems about his health and why he stopped his tour in 2016 because of health problems. I think it will capture perfectly the life of Avicii. You can see that not everything in his life was amazing. The music world has definitely a dark side which people often do not notice.

I also remember the time I went on exchange to Logroño in Spain which was a few years ago. I danced these 5 months all the time on “Wake Me Up”. My favourites songs from Avici are “Wake Me Up”, “The Nights” with the beautiful quote you can find on my collage, “Gonna Love Ya”, “Hey Brother” and so many more.

Here are some of my favourite songs:

Tim Berg – Seek Bromance

This was the song I listened so many times with my ex boyfriend. He was such a huge fan of Avicii and this was one of his favourite songs.


Avicii – Levels

This song is just so good! It’s also one of his most famous songs. The music is so good and I danced so much on this song! I love it and it makes me so damn happy ❤


Avicii – Wake Me Up

Wake Me Up is definitely one of my favourite songs of Avicii ever. I heard this song so much during my exchange time in Spain. I danced a lot on this song. I always feel so alive when I hear this song. This song and lyrics just describes my life so perfectly. I always want to travel the world and feel free. This song makes me realize that I can achieve any dream and that even though life may be hard, it’s worth it. Love is the most important thing in life.

Feeling my way through the darkness
Guided by a beating heart

So wake me up when it’s all over
When I’m wiser and I’m older
All this time I was finding myself, and I
Didn’t know I was lost

I tried carrying the weight of the world
But I only have two hands
Hope I get the chance to travel the world
But I don’t have any plans
Wish that I could stay forever this young
Not afraid to close my eyes
Life’s a game made for everyone
And love is a prize

 

Avicii – Hey Brother 

I also danced on this song so much! I love this song, well basically I love all his songs, right 😄


Avicii – Gonna Love Ya 

 

This is one of my favourite songs of Avicii too. The mix, the music, all the sound and lyrics is just so good. It makes me so happy. Also the lyrics reminds me of deserving that real love. I deserve to be treaten well.

I’m gonna love ya
Like no one could
Make your heart feel the way it should
I’m gonna hold ya
When no one would
‘Cause I swear you deserve some good


Avicii – The Nights

Damn this song…. This is one song which I often have on repeat and heard so much when I go paryting with my friends 💃 I’m so in love with this beautiful song. The video is beautiful and make me wanna go travel the world and leave everything behind me. This song just makes so much sense now….. It’s really sad he died so young but he definitely lived a life worth remembering. I just love this sentence so much. We will die one day but we have to live a life we will remember and enjoy all the good things in life.

He said, “One day you’ll leave this world behind
So live a life you will remember.”
My father told me when I was just a child
These are the nights that never die

I love you so much Avicii 💕 I’m so sad right now and I can’t stop crying. I will dry my tears by listening to your music tonight. Your music guide me though the light and dark in life. Your songs inspired, made us all so happy and spread only good vibes. The lyrics is just so good from all those songs. Avicii will continue to inspire us, make us happy and spread good vibes. His music will be there for us in good and bad times. You are a legend. You will forever be missed. We all are going to miss you so much but your music will forever be played 🎶❤️ You will live in our hearts and memories.

Avicii

Operación Triunfo concert: 16 March 2018 & post concert depression 🎶🎤💜

Hey lovelies 😍,

Today I’m going to share with you all my experience of the concert of Operación Triunfo in Palacio Vista Alegre in Madrid where I went last Friday with my lovely friend Maria. Operación Triunfo is a Spanish talentshow like X Factor, The voice, Idols. I love these singing contests so much because I love singing. I always wanted to enter too but I think it’s not my thing. I would be too anxious. I prefer to sing for fun. Being famous wouldn’t be my thing too. I prefer to have a private life than have million gossips about me written.

Operación Triunfo was on television from October till the beginning of February. There were 16 participants who were living in an singing academy where they could not have contact with anyone outside the academy. They had a special phone where they could share pictures on Instagram but couldn’t see the likes or comments. Once in a while they had a call with their family and at the end they could leave for Christmas for like two days. Their families also visited the academy once when there were only 5 finalists left. Every week there was a live show and there would be two nominations where one would leave the academy. Every week during the liveshow the public had to choose which one they prefer to stay for one week more in the academy.

These are the 16 participants of Operación Triunfo

The public Spanish television RTVE was really happy about the boom of Operación Triunfo. For many years it wasn’t on television anymore and now it came back. It was a huge success. Therefore, they had chosen the representants of Spain for Eurovision from Operación Triunfo. This was a special liveshow. I was so happy that Tu canción (written by Raúl Gomez) was chosen. Amaia & Alfred are going to represent Spain with this beautiful song. Amaia & Alfred together with Aitana are my favourite singers from this talentshow. Amaia & Alfred sang together the song City of stars during the third liveshow. Right in that moment they felt in love with each other. It’s such a beautiful story. Now, they are going together to Eurovision. Tu canción is a beautiful song too. It’s incredible how much I feel every time I hear this song. The melody is beyond beautiful and the words really mean something. I cry all the time when I hear this song. They sing the sentence “I feel like I’m dancing for the first time.” Love is beautiful and doesn’t need a language. Amaia and Alfred are pure magic and love. They are artists ❤

City of stars – Amaia & Alfred ❤

They make me wanna believe again in love. Love is the reason why we are living. Love doesn’t know any borders. Love is just the best thing ever and it’s even more beautiful when two people meet each other through music ❤ Just like Amaia and Alfred sing and with their eye contact and smiles, they tell us everything. I loved the kiss at the end. I don’t care how well this song will do in Eurovision because I know Europe will love them. They are already winners for me and you have my heart. I will forever be fan of Amaia and Alfred because of your emotion and passion for music. I love you till infinity and beyond ❤

This is the videoclip of Tu canción from Amaia & Alfred who will represent Spain in Eurovision in Portugal this year. The videoclip is so damn beautiful 😍 It demonstrates their love story 💕 They are also flying like Peter Pan at the end. Music who makes me feel something is for me the best music ever 😍

The winner of Operación Triunfo was chosen in the beginning of February during the final liveshow and was Amaia. Amaia is the deserved winner of Operación Triunfo 2017. She studies music & piano since she was little. Every time I hear her singing, I’m in love ❤ She is just full of emotion. I love how she is always so authentic, honest and real. I hope she will stay this way. She has such great values and such a lovely family. I really hope to meet you one day and get the chance to speak to you, give you a letter and take a picture with you. She means so much to me. I love you forever and I wish you all the best my darling ❤ I can’t wait to give you a hug one day.

I love this song from Florence and the Machine so much. This is my favourite song. Amaia sang Shake it out during the 9th liveshow of Operación Triunfo. It was definitely her best perfomance ever! ❤

Now, Operación Triunfo is doing a concert tour through whole Spain. The 16 singers are going to perform in many different cities in Spain. The first concert was on the third of March in Palau St. Jordi in Barcelona. I’m in love with all the 16 beautiful participants. They are all so talented. It’s not only the talent which made us fell in love with them. It’s their values, their honesty and sensitive hearts too. Raoul & Agoney kissed each other during the concert of Barcelona and said the sentence: “Love, Liberty and Visibility.” Marina showed on Spanish television that love is love and kissed her boyfriend which is transgender. Aitana showed that you can be friends with a boy named Cepeda. Real friendship exists. Alfred showed us that you don’t have to be ashamed of having a mental illness. He has anxiety and depression. He also donates money and is always thinking about making this world a better place to live in. Together with Amaia they showed us that real love exists and that’s the most beautiful thing in the world. Amaia showed us that shaving is a beauty standard and that women don’t have to shave just to look beautiful. Amaia also showed us that we should all fight for feminism. Roi showed us that the best thing in life is to laugh and make jokes. Everything is better with good humor. They learned us so many important lessons which I’m forever thankful of.

Last Friday (16-03-2018), I went to the concert of Operación Triunfo in Palacio Vista Alegre with my spanish friend Maria. It was awesome! It was definitely one of the best nights in my life ❤ It was such an unforgettable night. I have never seen so many police men, cars and even dogs as security. It always makes me a bit anxious but it’s better to have enough security and be safe. They sang 37 songs from the liveshows. They sang some songs all together, some duos and some alone.

My favourite songs were:

  • Shake it out – Amaia
  • Miedo – Amaia
  • Chandelier – Aitana
  • Issues – Aitana
  • Con las ganas – Amaia & Aitana
  • No puedo vivir sin ti – Aitana & Cepeda
  • Shape of you – Amaia & Roi
  • La bikina – Ana
  • Lo malo – Aitana & Ana
  • City stars – Amaia & Alfred
  • Tu canción – Amaia & Alfred
  • Que nos sigan las luces – Alfred
  • A quién le importa – All together
  • Camina – All together
  • La revolución sexual – All together

Miedo – Amaia during the concert of Madrid ❤

Chandelier – Aitana during the concert of Madrid ❤

Shape of you – Amaia & Roi during the concert of Madrid ❤

Tu canción – Amaia & Alfred during the concert in Madrid. I loved the kiss. They are so cute together ❤

Camina – All together ❤ They have all made this song which is the hymn of Operación Triunfo 2017

We had such good seats: just in front of the stage. There was one moment in the middle that I felt a bit anxious to have a panick attack but fortunately that feeling went away fast. The concert began at 21.30 till 00.00. There were 15.000 people omg!!! We took a taxi from the hotel to the Palacio Vista Alegre because otherwise we would have been too late. There was a big row to enter but we skipped it half way hahha xD. I love the organisation more in The Netherlands than in Spain. It was kinda chaotic. I also felt sometimes that the girls who were sitting near to us were laughing about us. It wasn’t true at all but my anxiety makes me always think about those stupid things…. I also always use ear plugs for concerts or parties because otherwise I will hear a noise in my ear or my ears ringing which cause me anxiety. Sometimes I feel ashamed for wearing it but nobody sees it because I have long hair. Besides, my health is more important than other people’s opinions. During a concert nobody is judging you. They are just enjoying the music.

I have never went to a concert with so many artists. Those 16 participants from Operación Triunfo are just so awesome! ❤ They are real artists and have so many beautiful values and beautiful voices. It was a concert full of magic & love <3. Raoul & Agoney also kissed each other during the concert after they sang together Manos vacias. Love is love <3. Amaia & Alfred also kissed each other too after singing Tu canción. It was such a beautiful concert ❤ Thank you all for an unforgettable night. I cried, I danced, I sang and I felt so alive. I live for concerts because music makes me feel so alive which is the best feeling ever ❤❤❤

Pictures which I have made during the concert

One of my favourite moments during the concert was when Alfred was singing the song “Que nos sigan las luces”. I love his voice, his beautiful values and how he can light up this whole world. He sang this song which means that the lights have to follow us. I loved that moment so much. Seeing all those beautiful lights and hearing this song was so damn beautiful. I felt so happy and alive. You are an amazing artist. I love Alfred so much ❤ They ended the concert singing all together la revolución sexual which means sexual revolution and means that love has no boundaries. Love is love. They ended with some awesome confetti in the air

Que nos sigan las luces – Alfred during the concert in Madrid. Beautiful lights and a beautiful song sang by a beautiful boy ❤

I made this collage of pictures which I made during the concert. On the picture on the left you can see “Tu canción – Amaia & Alfred”. I bought two shirts online for the concert. I lend my friend Maria a shirt with the text: “Ah I don’t know, buah what a horror”. Amaia always said that during the contest hahah. My shirt has a picture of Amaia & Alfred with the text “I feel like I’m dancing for the first time.” That’s what they sing in the song Tu canción. On the picture on the right you can see them all together singing “Camina”. The picture right below is where they sing all together “Revolución Sexual”.

After the concert we went to the hotel in Madrid which was just a half hour away. We got a bit lost but fortunately we could find the hotel and were there at 1.00 o’clock. It wasn’t that late but we stayed up until 3 o’clock watching all the pictures & videos made of the concert. We felt so happy, emotional and just all emotions together. On Saturday evening we went home to Valladolid. Since that day I feel a bit empty, lost and sad. I guess it’s also because I have a cold and my period together. I will never ever forget this concert. I want to relive it again. They are going to Valladolid in June so maybe I will go to this concert too with Maria. I have “post concert depression” which is the feeling you get the day after you went to a really fantastic concert.

Symptoms include:

1. The desire to relive the concert.
2. Thoughts similar to “The band were right here!” or “I’m never going to see them again”
3. Emotional pain when listening to the band’s music.” (Source: Urban Dictionary)

The best remedy to cure this is to buy again concert tickets hahah. I love going to concerts so much. I’m so happy that even though I suffer from anxiety I can go to concerts where they are millions of people. Never stop doing the things you love to do. I love going to concerts and anxiety will not make me stop going. I can’t wait to see you all again!!! ❤ I love you all so so so much! ❤

For a few seconds me and my lovely friend Maria are famous hahah!!! We were on Spanish television: news of RTVE. Hahaha you can see us in this video. I’m the one with the flower headband and next to me you can see my friend Maria.

You can watch the video on my Instagram where I shared it.

Thank you all for reading this blog post. I think this is my longest blog post ever so I’m sorry if it’s too long but I just enjoy talking about Operación Triunfo because it makes me so happy and music is just the best thing in life. Music unites people ❤ Only good vibes! In my next blog post I will write a travel post with some beautiful pictures of my trip to Madrid. Madrid is a beautiful city. I encourage anyone to go to this beautiful city one day! 😄

5 reasons why I love going to concerts 😍🎶

Hey lovely bloggers 😍,

I love to write about mental health but I also love to write about other things on my blog. I love to write about all the things I love to do in life such as going to concerts, reading, singing, surfing, photography, travelling and much more. This blog post will be about 5 reasons why I love going to concerts. I have been to a lot of concerts in my life such as: Alvaro Soler, Enrique Iglesias, Ron Pope, The Script, Ellie Goulding, The XX, Sean Koch Trio, Odesza, Avicii, La Oreja De Van Gogh, David Otero, Gente De Zona, Don Omar, Boyce Avenue, Chef’s Special, Passenger and Ed Sheeran came to sing one song which was awesome!, The Vaccines, Huecco, Miss Caffeina and many more.

This year I already bought concert tickets to go to the concert of Operacion Triunfo next month. This is a Spanish singing contest, a talentshow. Last Monday it ended. I will post a blog post about this contest another day. The concert will be in Madrid with the 16 participants. I can’t wait to see them all live with my lovely Spanish friend Maria! ❤ I also will stay two days in Madrid which is awesome. Madrid is one hour away by train from Valladolid. Last weekend 4 participants of Operacion Triunfo went to Valladolid to sign cd’s. I was in the row for three hours in the cold but I survived and got my cd signed! It was an amazing experience to meet these beautiful people and I gave them some cards which I wrote for them. I also took pictures with them and one girl named Thalia gave me two kisses on the cheek like a friend greeting in Spain. That was so damn cute! ❤

This was last weekend when I got my cd of Operacion Triunfo signed. Roi, Thalia, Mireya and Marina from Operacion Triunfo came to Valladolid. It was so nice to meet them and take pictures with them! ❤ I loved the good vibes 😀

I also bought tickets to see Pablo Alboran which is also a famous Spanish singer. This concert will be in Valladolid, my home city on the second of June. Just one day after my birthday which is the first of June. This is an amazing present for me because I always wanted to go to his concert! He sings so beautiful and his songs are really beautiful ❤

Here are my 5 reasons why I love going to concerts:

1. The good vibes

Even though I get sometimes a bit anxious about being in rows and about the crowd, I really enjoy concerts so much. I will never sit or stand in the front with all people but just at a place where I can watch the concert and feel comfortable. I love the good vibes at a concert. Everyboody is happy to see their favourite artist live. Everybody is just so at peace and happy and nobody is judging you. I really love that so much. I also love when everybody is singing the song which the artist is playing and you can just feel how everybody connect with each other through the music. I also forget the whole world around me during a concert and I’m just enjoying that moment. During a concert you forget the problems you have in life and you just enjoy life ❤

2. Making new friends

At a concert it’s easy to make new friends and make connection with people. Everybody is there for the same reason. We are all fans. I love to meet new people with the same music taste. I love that soooo much. Last weekend, during the day of signing cd’s from Operacion Triunfo I met some lovely girls and made friends. It was so nice to talk to them about who they like from Operacion Triunfo and be connected. Music definitely connects people.

I met this lovely girl called Ines last weekend when I got my cd of Operacion Triunfo signed. I also met her friend Sandra. It’s so nice to meet new people who share the same music taste ❤ I love to make new friends 🙂

3. Music is life

I just can’t live without music. Imagine life without music…. That would be definitely a hell. Music is always there for you, in good and bad times. Sometimes I can’t find the rights words to explain how I’m feeling at that moment. Then I will find a song which explains exactly what I’m feeling at that moment. I think that’s really awesome. Music unites people from all over the world in a beautiful way. Music will always be there for you when you are feeling bad and cheer you up. Music will be there when you are happy and you can sing all the lyrics loud out and dance to your favourite songs. I’m so happy music exists ❤ The world is more beautiful with music! ❤

4. Meeting your favourite artist

Sometimes when you are in a concert you can meet your favourite artist, talk with them and take pictures with them. I got to meet Alvaro Soler, David Otero, Ron Pope, Rosana and some participants from Operacion Triunfo. This was definitely so awesome! I could take pictures with them and let them sign me a card or a cd. I loved to meet them all especially Alvaro Soler because the concert was in a little theatre and we had time to talk to him afterwards. With the other artists, we all had to rush and take a picture and byebye. I said to Alvaro Soler that my mother was born in Valladolid and more stuff and it was so nice and he was so cute and asdfghjkl ❤ Meeting your favourite artist after being fan after such a long time is definitely one of my favourite experiences of going to a concert ❤

Me and my friend Shams went to the concert of Alvaro Soler. We sang all the songs out loud and were so happy when at the end we could finally meet him and made some pictures with him. He also signed his picture and talked a bit with us. I still have all these memories in my room and will forever cherish them ❤

5. The awesome memories you make

The awesome memories you make during a concert will always stay with you. All my life I will go to concerts with my friends and family. I always make videos and pictures during a concert to cherish this beautiful moments with my friends and family forever. You will never forget that day that you finally saw your favourite artist live. It’s just so awesome to remember that forever.

I hope you all like this blog post. To which concert did you all go? Do you also enjoy going to concerts so much? I would love to receive your comments and thoughts about this. Thank you for reading my blog post and will talk to you all in my next blog post!

Love you all so much! 😍

Much love 💕,
